Do you know this bear? It's called Kumamon bear. It is very popular in Hong Kong and of course, in Japan. It is a mascot created by the government of Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan. You may take a look at wiki to learn more about this bear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kumamon).
I think the fabric is cute so I use it to make a baby bib for my boy. However, my mom doesn't like it because it is blank in colour. >.< This is a very traditional Chinese thinking, who thinks black means something unfortunate. Anyway, I like it.
I will also list this as a made to order item in my etsy shop.

Do you like this bambi baby bib? The bambi fabric is from Atsuko Matsuyama 30s line. I have been selling this super cute fabric for some time. Finally, I have the chance to use it.

Since my boy was born, I always wanted to make baby bibs for him. I have envisioned many cute bibs and how to make them in my head for many times. Finally, I put my thought into action!! I drew the pattern using one of his bibs. I am quite satisfied with my project this time although my 13-month boy did not show any interest or appreciation on it, as expected. XP
I used a high quality quilted linen fabric as the back. I know most people use chenille or flannel. However, I don't know where can I get chenille or flannel in Hong Kong. Last week when I was shopping in a local fabric shop, I saw a high quality quilted linen fabric and I thought I could use it as the back of baby bibs. This quilted linen back make the bib sturdy and absorbent and I really love it!
Although I have a boy...if you know me, I like making girly things more, so I made this hexi patchwork bib. This one is listed in my little etsy shop now.
